Excellent article builds on political studies showing increasing cultural sorting of USA polity that has led to the current poisonous atmosphere:

snips with emphasis in italics and bolding all mine!!

"...haphazard, unpredictable toggling back and forth among GOP leaders. Occasionally, they will capitulate to the reality of actually governing a large, complex society, in which their views are, on most issues, increasingly unpopular....

"....will continue to carry water for the super wealthy while trying to burnish their "populist" credentials in the only way they know how -- by obstructing voting, undermining economic recovery and standing in the way of a more inclusive citizenry, the better to foment the resentment and fear of change that remain the party's cornerstones."
